    I just got the fascinate last week, so I'm still trying to figure all of this out. When I first set up the phone I chose to turn on the call announce feature thinking it would announce once and then ring...it doesn't. I have been trying for the life of me to figure out how to turn the stupid feature off with no luck. Please help....how do I turn call announce off? Thanks Amber :)

    It announces "call from..." and then the name or number of the person calling over and over. It's rather annoying lol!

    Try Settings->Call Settings-->Caller ID Readout--> Ring only

    I do not have a stock Fascinate and have never experienced this but hopefully we can turn it off without master resetting it

    I have the same problem, and I don't know how it ever got to call announce. However when I went to Settings->Call Settings-->I did not have Caller ID readout or Ring Only selection. What I do have under Call Setting is
    Voicemail Service
    Voicemail
    Ignore with message
    Auto retry
    DTMF tones
    TTY Mode
    Voice privacy


    Any ideas
    Thanks

    Text To Speech Settings
    Unchecked Driving Mode

    Hope this helps.

    No, that setting was already unchecked. I talked to VZ support and they were baffled, then they got Samsung support involved and they could not figure it out either. Samsung said to do the factory reset, which I am not quite ready for that yet. Still searching.
